Re: Today I Received...

The other day I received this very lovable contemporary case-modded ZX81! It's looks very important, like it wouldn't have been out of place in a serious industrial setting, with a proper keyboard (by Klaus Jeschke in Germany according to its PCB) and as a bonus, it must have been used for some prop...

Re: Controlling DIR scrolling

It would appear that the use of KEYROW doesn't actually work. I tried the following ... 100 DIR win1_ 110 dummy = KEYROW(0) 120 PRINT #0,"All clear" The typed in characters are appearing after the All clear message. It's beginning to look like the only way would be to avoid using TK2 and ...

Re: Controlling DIR scrolling

Thanks everyone.

I'll have a play. I did include a dummy = KEYROW(0), but I suspect in the wrong place! It's my first attempt at a SuperBasic program and I'm really not good at these things, but I will share it when it's done. It certainly helps me to manage zip files and saves a lot of time.

Controlling DIR scrolling

Hello, I'm just writing a little SuperBasic prog on an original QL with TK2, to help me manage and unzip the tons of zip files downloaded from Dilwyn's site. The program can (if you want it to) display a Dir listing of a directory but the directory in question is quite full, so it expects you to pre...

Re: Sinclair QL Power Supply

Yes, it'll be fine. Apart from the designation EU2000/UK2000 and the plug types (which probably were not included when new anyway) they are exactly the same. Paypal is fine or bank transfer even better, I can provide references. Do you want to pm me or shall I pm you?

Re: Sinclair QL Power Supply

As no one has replied and I hate to see someone with an unusable original QL..... I have a spare power supply that I know works. Slight drawback is that it has a European plug and is in Germany. £33 with normal small packet postage or £37 trackable and insured. It is actually a UK model (UK2000 as a...

Re: Hello and my QL experience so far

Yes, I do use WTV in my normal boot file and quite often for changing things back, but it doesn't seem to help in the pointer environment with those menus and all the channels open.

Re: Another microdrive re-felting enquiry.

Thanks. Have you got any spare by any chance? eBay sellers seem to charge a fortune to Germany. It can't be £9 odd postage for a small envelope, surely. And it doesn't have to be insured/tracked for the sake of £3.50. If not, I'll wait and get some on the next UK visit. Just noticed you're in the US...

Another microdrive re-felting enquiry.

I re-felted a couple of cartridges with some self adhesive felt that was designed to go on the bottom of ornaments or whatever, so that they don't scratch surfaces. It worked initially, but must have been too rough as I can't get a dir now. Can someone recommend a source of self adhesive felt so tha...

Re: Hello and my QL experience so far

Hi, I have a beta version of the TDI Startup kit, written by Alain Haoui. If the official release is the same as my version. Please look in the ETC subdirectory where you will find "menuconfig" You need the Extended Environment or Pointer Interface installed to run Menuconfig. Thanks, yes...
